Out of respect for the cultural protocols around medicines, sacred objects, and ceremony, this is a clean and sober camp: meaning we will be drug and alcohol-free.
This gathering is also a green camp, please no plastic or Styrofoam.
As well, remember to bring your own feast bag (tea towel, plate, bowl, coffee mug, cup, fork, knife, and spoon) as food will be available throughout the weekend but feel free to bring your own food as well.
A full list of what you can bring can be found HERE
There is no electricity or Wi-Fi at the camp, so please leave your electronics at home
